Craft Weight:  2 Pounds (approx) loaded with LiPo battery and radio equipment.


Power: 7.2 or 8.4 volt battery pack with 1700mA/Hr and greater capacity. This can be NiCad, LiPo or NiMH battery packs. LiPo will give the best results due to their very light weight and is our recommended choice.


Motor: 480 size 


Propellers: 6 inch, Ducted


Skirt: Black Rip-stop Vinyl


Operating Surface:

Water or Land (will float off of hover and return to full hover) 

Will transition from water to land


Hover Height: 1.5 inches (no additional load other than kit as built with 6 cell NiCad)


Radio Requirements: 2 channel RC systems (as used in RC cars and boats). The Futaba 2DR is an ideal radio kit and comes with transmitter, receiver and servo.


Speed Controller Requirements: 20 Amp 7-8 cell Electronic Speed Controller (ESC). The Intellispeed ESC from www.towerhobbies.com works very well in this craft.


How Long Will it Take to Build?

Makes a great weekend project. It will take you approximately 3-4 hours of construction time after painting to complete it if you have RC modeling experience. If you're a beginner in RC modeling then allow a weekend to get the project completed and have your HoverDart hovering. 


To Finish the 

HoverDART Model

You will require:

  • 2 cans (3oz) Model spray paint - Testors™ or Humbrol™ 

  • Small tube - silicone bath seal

  • Small modeling knife

  • Soldering iron

  • Some stick-on RC plane balancing weights maybe required depending on the type and size of battery used. A 6 cell RC car NiCad will require 3-4 ounces depending on the battery manufacturer.

As with all Hovercraftmodels.com kits the construction manual is a RC Hovercraft Manual - Hovercraftmdodels.comvery comprehensive and detailed document. 


"very detailed construction manual"


Containing step-by-step instructions the manual takes you through preparation and assembly of the craft. It also includes an electrical wiring diagram, craft setup, and operating instructions. After initial painting the assembly of the craft takes just 3-4 hours. 


Note: The speed controller, radio, batteries, and servo are not included in the HoverDart kit. You will need to source these at your local RC hobby store or go online to www.towerhobbies.com. We strongly recommend the use of LiPo battery packs with this craft due to their light weight. Light weight battery packs give better speed and agility. The Futaba 2DR radio is ideal for this craft and the Intellispeed Forward Only speed controller works well with the HoverDart as well. You could also use an existing 2 channel radio setup and speed controller if you have them.



Note: Specification are subject to change as we have a policy of continual product improvement.
